Expectation for internal and classic definitions against Fluminense, Vasco and Flamengo: Botafogo's February

 February reserves emotions for Botafogo. The second month of 2022, which begins this Tuesday, brings to light three classics for the team led by Enderson Moreira. Off the field, there is the expectation that the final step towards the sale of SAF will be taken and John Textor will sign the definitive contract.


With a win and a draw in the State so far, Alvinegro even tries to find the best form on the field and understands that each match will be a way to improve the rapport between the players. In this context, February can be useful: there will be six games.

Not all dates are confirmed yet due to uncertainties about the stages of the duels, but the trend is that Enderson Moreira has only one week free for training in the month - precisely the last days of February. Initially, the calendar brings appointments with little slack between days.

Tests will also be targeted. Botafogo will face Fluminense, Vasco and Fluminense in a sequence of ten days - again, if there is no change in the dates due to a change in logistics. Alvinegro will have the three classics practically in one shot.

But the month will not be based only on football. There is the expectation that John Textor will sign the definitive contract and become, in fact, the buyer of 90% of the Botafogo SAF. Recently, he signed the mutual agreement, allowing the bridge loan of R$ 50 million. The definitive bond is the "last house" of negotiations.

Contracts are studied from both sides and the tendency is for a happy ending. André Chame, spokesperson for the negotiations between Botafogo and John Textor, stated that the projection was that everything would be resolved by February 28.

Foot - Cup - Nice - Christophe Galtier (Nice) after qualifying against PSG: "A very good performance"



Christophe Galtier, the coach of Nice, was necessarily satisfied after the qualification won by his men at the Parc des Princes, Monday in the round of 16 of the Coupe de France (0-0, 6-5 on tab). “In what state of mind did you find the players? Euphoric or in the idea of ​​going to the end?

Both. But before going to the end we will have to beat Marseille anyway. It's a very good performance. We were able to seize the opportunity to play a very weakened PSG with the injured, the players in selection. Paris, with its technical quality, requires a lot of effort. It was good in that sense. It was better with the use of the ball compared to the Championship match but not enough. We had opportunities to bring the big danger on the Parisian goal but we negotiated them badly, perhaps by haste, or fatigue in the second half. With the entry of Kylian (Mbappé) who always puts a lot of pressure, we were able to resist. "I wanted Marcin to have benchmarks if he were to enter the Championship" Is the objective to win the title?

We know the relationship between Paris and the Coupe de France. Before going to get this trophy which is in my eyes the most beautiful, there is Marseille which presents itself. In a little over a week we will have a very intense match against OM who also have a great history with this trophy. There will be a great atmosphere. But before that there is the Championship and Clermont, we will have to continue. read also PSG-Nice notes: Icardi in deadweight, Bulka as a hero Why did you choose Marcin Bulka for the goal? How did you find his performance?

I needed to see him in a game with a bigger opponent than Cholet. I told both goalkeepers that I was not giving the competition to just one. The difference is that Walter (Benitez) didn't have the Covid and could be out. I wanted Marcin to have benchmarks if he were to enter the Championship. I found him calm, serene, quite sure of himself when taking the ball. Then there is the penalty shootout. As much as she is not specially prepared for shooters, as much for Marcin, Nicolas Dehon (Gym goalkeeper coach), who is a former PSG player, has a lot of data on shooters. He prepared it with great professionalism. A word on Dante's Panenka. You said that Gouiri's in Nice annoyed you a bit...

I said that in Metz, the ground was difficult and that you need good ground to succeed. We give benchmarks, but after that it's the feeling. I haven't seen Dante take a penalty in training once, not even this week (smile). It is an exercise that is so special. Andy who always marks his own, tonight he is stopped. » read also Nice qualifies for the quarter-finals of the Coupe de France against PSG on penalties

Bayern future? Nübel consultant reveals the plan

 


Alexander Nübel's advisor has commented on his client's plans for his future after speculation recently arose that the goalkeeper's loan from FC Bayern to AS Monaco could come to an end prematurely

"I assume that he will also play in Monaco next season and that a decision will be made about his future at FC Bayern in early 2023," emphasized Stefan Backs in the evening newspaper.

The loan deal between the German champions and the Ligue 1 club ends in the summer of 2023 - at the same time as Manuel Neuer's contract.

Does Neuer extend Bayern and influence Nübel?

However, the number one of the record champions is about to extend his contract until 2025. Should this happen, this could also have an impact on Nübel's future.

"Of course it doesn't make sense for Alex to sit behind Neuer on the bench," explained Backs.

Nübel, who switched from FC Schalke 04 to the Isar in 2020, joined the Monegasque after a first season with hardly any playing time. The 25-year-old is the first-choice goalkeeper there and conceded 26 goals in 22 games.

"I already said when he came from Schalke that he wasn't ready for Bayern," said the former goalkeeper in kicker and spoke of a "stupid decision".

Hartenstein cheers with the Clippers

Former neighbor reports threats from Corinthians player


Reddit Jujutsu kaisen 0 After the ex-girlfriend reported threats, now it was the turn of a neighbor to make accusations against Rodrigo Varanda, a Corinthians player.

Isabella Alves and Victor Camargo would have argued with the player in the condominium where they live in Tatuapé, in the East Zone of São Paulo. According to the couple, after constant parties with loud music in the apartment next to the family, the couple complained and was threatened by the attacker.

She says in an argument, this one involving her husband, the athlete would have gone further in threats: “Do you have a small daughter? So, be smart”, the player would have said to the couple who have a three-year-old daughter.

Isabella says she moved to the Vivace Clube condominium in June 2020. As it is located close to Parque São Jorge, the house is rented to Corinthians base athletes.

“In the first or second week (after the couple moved) they had their first little party. I called there and they told me that the noise was not from the apartment. I went there, in my pajamas, and at the table I saw Rodrigo and another boy from the base, all drunk, thrown on the couch. The Corinthians boys all live there. I asked to be silent, I contacted the manager and she informed me that they had several previous complaints, but that there was nothing they could do”, he said.

After complaining to the condominium, without success, the resident sought the police seeking a solution.

“That same day, I called the police and the boys went to the lobby to talk to the police. The mother of one of them came to my apartment to ask her son to apologize. Rodrigo, at my door, told me: 'If you were in my hood, we'd sit you on the dick. If you end my career, I end your life. You don't know who I am”, says Isabella.

The family changed their routine in order not to find the player who made the threats and preferred to change the location to avoid problems. The episode was only exposed now, precisely because of the complaints of an ex-girlfriend of the player.

Rodrigo Varanda has not yet taken a position on the case and Corinthians reported that the player is on vacation, after the Copinha dispute, and when he returns to base training he will analyze the situation.
